>> there you go. you're saying if you don't get it, demand it. avoid riots because of it. >> clever, neil. >> you said you had all day to work on this. >> had six months to do this. >> that will do it. hello, i'm dana perino with andrea tantaros, bob beckel who is not talking to eric, eric bolling, and brian kill immediate. this is "the five." there's a worldwide alert for americans traveling overseas in the wake of a new terror threat from al qaeda. the state department announced they're shutting 17 embassies most in the muslim world. current information suggests that al qaeda and affiliates may be planning attacks between now and end of august, possibly in the middle east or north africa. eric, this is an administration who is not afraid of a tv
2:01pm
camera, was given this news, how unprecedented it is, we were at the white house waiting for any sort of comment. look, empty, crickets, nothing out of washington. nothing from state department, nothing on dod, there was no comment. honestly, they announced the president ate breakfast. that's the announcement we get. today after this, we have absolutely nothing. it sounds very serious, are you skeptical? >> well, of course, wasn't a george zimmerman they could comment on and president obama could say he may have been trayvon martin 35 years ago. a lot of people are saying it is america's weakness, we're showing we're afraid of al qaeda, closing embassies. on the other hand, god forbid another attack happens and we weren't prepared and didn't vacate some people and heard these threats, a lot of us at
2:02pm
this table would say we should have closed embassies. we have assets and fast response teams in spain, bahrain, italy, the marine expeditionary unit in the middle east ready to go. this is clearly by the size and scope of it, 21 embassies, 4 consulates, the scope of this tells you there's a credible threat. this is going to be something that they believe in nature, al qaeda and arabian peninsula likely. maybe it wasn't a bad idea to close some of these. >> it does, andrea, seem overbroad. maybe they have reason to because they have enough chatter to know something is going on, not sure, perhaps it is a way to draw out the terrorists, trying to figure out, pinpoint who it is. >> i hope that's it. it is one of two things. one, the threat is credible, it is serious, and the reason for the silence could be that this
2:03pm
administration just a couple weeks ago during memorial day told us we were not at war with radical islam and there was no war on terror. they also used talking points in the 2012 campaign that al qaeda was decimated and that they were on the run. so i can understand why they don't want to answer questions. or, and this may be more conspiratorial, or they're sensitive on this issue, weak on this issue. new wrinkles on benghazi coming out, big issues we're going to get into later. this is bigger and blown up more than you think. >> what about the campaign when it was repeat that al qaeda is decimated, even though we said it is more -- is it back, resurgent? >> the original al qaeda has been decimated, but it has reformtd in the arraignian peninsula and a lot of people use the words al qaeda. a, i think they have credible
2:04pm
chatter, and secondly because of benghazi. last thing they want is another of these things happen. remember after benghazi said on background if we had to do it over, we would have sent people in even if it wouldn't do anything. my guess is they picked up chatter, said no more benghazi. >> that's interesting. this past week the president and others in the administration have been saying benghazi is one of the phony scandals. if all of the phony scandals, like the doj investigation into james rosen for his investigative work, the irs scandal and now benghazi, if those, all three of those things actually changed policy in the administration, are they really so phony? >> no, in terms of phony scandals, first i thought we had a chance to talk in between, thought it was a mistake, saying the phony scandals, let's get back to building the middle class, and it wasn't. everyone is saying the term phony scandals. what i find serious about this,
2:05pm
9/11 is coming up, 9/11 in 2012 was devastating, how many embassies were hit. and i think the most devastating thing in the last year, nothing happened to them. cover of inspire magazine has an american flag on the ground, al qaeda flag hanging over the egyptian embassy. is a was here ee's brother put out saying this was a victory for us. coming up on victory two. never punched back and that matte matters. did we push back? >> killed them with drones. >> those guys are hanging out. >> we are in retreat, islam is on the march, of course they recalibrated it, you mentioned, bob, al qaeda is a brand, you don't have to be part of a terrorist cell. you can be radicalized whether in boston or bahrain. >> how can you say we're in
2:06pm
retreat? i don't know where you get the substance of that. >> we have a president that refuses to acknowledge on memorial day that we are at war with radical islam. he refuses to say the words, he actually is in denial. we are pulling forces out of the middle east. didn't scramble jets when we could have. he calls the deaths of four americans fake. i can go on. >> specifics to this one, approaching the end of ramadan, night of power coming up, also a 20 year anniversary august 7th of an attack that killed many at embassies around the world. maybe in abundance of caution. >> the president's birthday. >> and it is not just embassy staff being warned, americans traveling overseas, make sure you look at the state department warnings because it does say especially if transportation type things, making sure you
2:07pm
take care of yourself, be on the lookout, that warning through the end of ramadan. >> they also have a special day, if there's a full moon during ramadan. >> night of power. >> that's apparently a very big deal. >> for the power rangers. >> that's -- have you kept yours together? >> still on ebay. >> benghazi as andrea said, eric, there are developments, cnn is reporting there may have been, they are reporting that there were dozens of cia operatives on the ground during the benghazi attack, this is a secret arms dealing situation, gun running, want to be quiet. >> two issues, that there were cia on the ground, several dozen what they say, may have been gun running, whatever you want to call it to some syrians, i guess, is that right?
2:08pm
however there's something more insidious about this. in the aftermath of that, they have been sworn to secrecy, told to take lie detector tests, not allowed to speak to anyone, they're fearful not only of their own safety but their family's safety. it is almost like they're living in a regime, in a dictatorshidi >> i want to read a statement from the cia today. dean boyd, kind of a blast from my past, used to work with me in the bush administration said cia employees are always free to speak to congress if they want to and there is no established process to facilitate such communication on a confidential basis. the cia enabled all officers voz h involved in benghazi the opportunity to meet with congress. bob, you know how that works, if you want to talk to members of congress, there's a special procedure you can go through. where do you think the truth lies in this? >> i think most were there in
2:09pm
the international space shuttle, held in kmun cad oh. a lot of them are libyans we had to put on our payroll, they're not about to get themselves exposed. >> maybe not in america. >> my guess is the vast number of them are foreign nationals. >> i don't know. i have been reading a lot with cnn, they're saying their sources say these are cia people, americans. >> they say americans? >> i am pretty sure they said americans. >> and afraid for their families. >> polygraph test, asking some of them to change their name, which i find out rages. if there were 35 people on the ground that night, wouldn't cia officers be able to tell us it wasn't a spontaneous demonstration created by a mob? it was consistent with what the cia said a long time. also, dana, cnn has reported the head of this group that could be
2:10pm
responsible for this, amud abu ka tal a said nobody has interrogated me, i would be happy to answer questions. why is cnn and the american media able to locate him, our president that promised to bring him to justice hasn't even interrogated him. >> the question is can you build a case against a guy, not what he is going to say. using cnn as a source here? >> they broke the story. >> we should be taking them out. >> the thing is, they're secretive on some things, which i can appreciate, then not on other things that make the president look good. and the leaks are just bizarre. >> there is a theory that people in the libyan government were happy to see benghazi blown up. >> he is the self proclaimed
2:11pm
leader of and sar al sharif. why don't we pick him up, take him to gitmo, see if he tells us. >> you have to prosecute him. >> why? >> don't you think we should ask him what he knows? >> what was the cia there for? the rumor is they were getting the weapons away from rebels there to bring to the rebels in syria via turkey. are they trying to do an iran contra thing, the method is fine, the message is something americans don't want, so we just make it happen. >> what about that the ambassador showed up there, he wasn't supposed to be there and he shows up. >> i would like to not operate on theory. we are coming up on the anniversary and give facts about leaking stuff about israel and syria this week that makes the president look better on that. why not this? >> issa has all this information. >> surely you don't blame chris
2:12pm
stevens for his own death. >> no, i think he happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. >> why did they strip him of security when he was asking for more security? something is off about this, bob. something is very, very odd now that we know there were 35 cia agents on the ground. >> you don't think it is a phony scandal. >> you're absolutely correct, never have. >> bob, bob, bob. ahead on "the five," ask us anything you want. we will answer your questions later in the hour. congress cut a deal. is it a fair rule or different rules for people in power. back on that when we come back. ♪ ♪

2:17pm
to trayvon martin, all local issues that weren't part of his job. >> the cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof they were in their own home. i don't know what's in rush limbaugh's heart. the reason i called it a fluke is because i thought about malia and sasha, one of the things i want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about. when trayvon martin was first shot, i said that this could have been my son. another way of saying that is trayvon martin could have been me 35 years ago. >> but for some reason, the president hasn't said a word on sex scandals that are rocking the democratic party now. serial sexter anthony weiner
2:18pm
wants to represent new york, eliot spitzer also running for office in new york city, and san diego's democratic mayor bob filner had a ninth woman come out to accuse him of sexual misconduct. >> hugged me a little too closely, then put his arm around me like this. and then he proceeded to slide his arm down and give a little grab to my derriere. when it is coming from the mayor, i didn't want to make a scene really. >> she's a marilyn monroe impersonator. this isn't a laughing matter. mayor filner wants the city to pay his legal fees. he has been harassing women, heard nancy pelosi and other members of the female caucus, now women that want to meet with him for business reasons have to have a chaperone.
2:19pm
but there's a republican war on women? >> it is preposterous. the thing is, democrats, and a lot of women in the democratic party are hypocrites. when you point it out, there's a definition of hypocrite. there's also his spokesperson, sorry, chief of staff, quoted on another network the other day, saying the mayor is surround bied sophisticated advisers. if you're a democrat, that's all that matters. if you have a progressive vision, pro-choice, doesn't matter how you conduct yourself in public office, as long as you have that vision, as long as you're not a republican, you're fine. >> eric, the war on women play book worked in 2012 arguably. i think they were hoping to use it in the 2014 mid terms, but this abc news poll online showed a shocking surprise. the democratic war on women against republicans isn't really
2:20pm
working, so do you think they'll continue to spout those talking points? >> i think they'll have to back off on the women talking points because of the democratic war on women. look full screen, i don't know what you call these guys, make mcnasty, filthy filner, he is claiming it is the city's fault not giving him sexual harassment training, he is saying the city has to pay his legal fees. the guy needs to step aside. wouldn't work well for me, i know for a fact most of us are wearing underwear. he asked the women not to wear underwear to work. >> and commented on women that are not wearing underwear. >> thanks for bringing that up. >> can i ask you, associated press hit the president pretty hard on not commenting on the mayor filner issue. i can see why he wouldn't comment on weiner because he is a candidate, but do you think the president should weigh in because of the war on women message he has used? >> i don't remember a single
2:21pm
republican that weighed in on a senator from louisiana going to prostitutes. >> i did. >> who? >> several of them did. talking about senator vitter. don't have to be shy about that. >> i was trying to be nice. >> there was condemnation of that. >> let's not change the topic. >> i don't think that obama -- first of all, you can find any president that comments on things that have nothing to do with the office. nice job of editing promised i wouldn't beat up on our show, could have done that with any president in the last 50 years with tape. secondly, obama, why would he want to get inned middle of that. you don't advise them to get involved in a local issue like that, i mean, why? >> and to all of the other local issues, pop culture. he is supposed to be protector of women. >> buy the guy some jockey shorts and let it go. >> in san diego, it is all they can talk about. i think he will lose his seat to
2:22pm
a republican soon, looks bad. it is a conservative paper taking him to task, justifiably so. what's amazing, he talks about going to rehab. says good news, they'll send my work to rehab, so i can keep up with the day to day work of san diego. the serial sexting, i didn't know that was a term. he is doing that. and he is going now to deal with this hugging problem. only thing he ever admitted to is he is a serial hugger. >> he is a hugger, anthony weiner was just joking. they want us to move on. dana, this is not a joke. this story has me furious, should have everyone at home. there was an error drafting in the obama care law will make congressional hill staffers rolled into the exchanges, the president stepped in this morning, they were whining, we don't want obama care even though our bosses voted for it. saved the day, last item of business before he jets off.
2:23pm
what do you think. >> i will try to poor cold water on everybody's outrage. there was a drafting problem, they drafted it in secret, nobody read the bill beforehand. they didn't specify legislative aides were federal employees, which is true, they are. what happened, they were carved out. you have, for example, somebody that makes $75,000 a year, single mom of three kids, looking at a $21,000 out of pocket expense in order to keep the health care she has. it doesn't mean that -- what they decided to do, it is unclear the specifics, but the employer, the federal government is going to be able to continue to contribute to their health care like if you are an employee, which i am not, if you are an employee, many employers offer it. the problem is in the appearance, i agree with that. it is not that they're being exempted from obama care. it is unfair to staffers to say that. >> their reaction was we don't want anything to do with obama
2:24pm
care says it all, head of the irs danny werfel wants his health care, doesn't want obama care. the unions pushed this on everyone and exempt themselves. the hypocrisy is unbelievable. >> i agree. we talked about if the unions didn't want it, irs that will enforce it doesn't want it, staffers who half them probably voted for obama and wanted obama care pushed through realize later they didn't want actual obama care. it is ultimate hypocrisy. >> haven't said to the unions what they're going to do. that remains a big mystery. what are they going to tell unions or tell democrats to tell the unions. >> brian? >> senator grassley deserves credit, he knew when he passed it, they had to put one thing in, be part of obama care. the main difference, the government was contributing 75%. that's unbelievable. >> they get 75%. it is incredible. somebody that's not an employee
2:25pm
and pay as an individual, yeah. it rubs me the wrong way. to say they don't have to be part of obama care at all is not accurate. >> i could not get health insurance in maryland because i had open-heart surgery. they were the first ones to implement obama care. i now pay $400 a month and get it. >> doesn't it look bad. >> you only pay $400 a month. >> i do. look at my health insurance bills. >> $20,000 deductible. >> $3600 deductible. >> that's a good deal. >> poor bob. >> they carve them out, said legislative aides weren't federal employees. now that part is what office of professional management is doing. >> looks really, really bad. >> coming up, charlie rangel gets racial. should those comments be acceptable in 2013? later, facebook friday on

♪ you know, the camera guy says the room looks huge, like a giant gym. a little later, we're going to focus on the temperature. meanwhile, charlie rangel got racial when he was talking about conservatives. the new york democrat compared members of the tea party to white crackers and said they can be defeated the same way segregation was years ago.
2:31pm
rangel said, quote, it is the same group we faced in the south with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. right on the money, andrea? >> that's outrageous. unfortunately i think charlie rangel would like to deflect attention from him as well and his ethical troubles. what do you do when desperate, go into the decks, pull out the race card. it is pretty shameful, especially if he really knew the meaning of the word, and i think he does, and he knows he will never be called on the carpet for it. >> he says house hoips did more damage to american competitiveness than al qaeda would do. what is happening is sabotage, dana. >> he noticed other grown men were getting attention, fighting against one another, he wanted to up the ante, get more attention by saying something. >> even though he is a marginalized sullied congressional figure, isn't it outrageous he gets a pass on
2:32pm
this? >> we're in error, says rangel's cracker comment. >> i wish i knew more about slang negative terms. >> i remember watching someone say on tv -- it is not a racial term. here is the point. charlie rangel is talking like this when he should be focusing on black unemployment. unemployment numbers came out, black unemployment, young blacks unemployed at a rate of 41.2%. a record! if they were less focused on playing the race card, more focused on getting jobs and specifically for the black community, they'll all be perfect off, bob, we would all be better off. >> is he talking less about tea party, is he saying tea partiers are standing up to what they do in the house by policy and making the president's term bad? is that racial standing up to the president and his agenda? >> i have known charlie a long
2:33pm
time, hard to keep up with who charlie is referring to. i will is a this, there was win isolated story about a tea party gathering where there were racial things said. it was best to keep that alone, there has been no evidence that there's been rampant racism in the tea party movement, and if i were charlie, i would be careful about saying those things. >> the president told him to quit. can we talk about that? >> that is great. that is great. can you tell the other bob beckel that sat there what you just said. >> i never called the tea party all racist. >> you called them a bunch of other names. >> they are, but they're not racist. >> they have an agenda, fiscal responsibility. >> rangel should not have a job. >> go to something else you have an opinion on, if not it will be a quiet three minutes. editor of new haven register came out andapologized, because of comments he made about fox news indicating that we -- equating us to being in the kkk,
2:34pm
white supremist. the apology says i never meant to do that, as i borrow dana's magic marker, never meant to equate that to fox news to the kkk, we did not intend to compare them and should have done a better job clarifying it. there is no comparing fox news and republican party to the kkk. we are wrong those, we were wrong in making the connection. look at the cartoon next to the apology? takes everything away. i apologize for hitting my sister, i would like to hit her again. fox news, not racist but with racists. >> that's from the simpsons, that cartoon. >> why was it necessary to put that. >> why was it necessary for -- >> they think they're so darn clever. imagine the cocktail parties, did you see that.

2:36pm
i don't see how the apology makes sense. >> exactly. you know why they apologize, the ball back they received they never anticipated. >> and bill o'reilly, giving you a compliment, especially dana. >> let's not make that a broad statement. up next, "the five" facebook friday is next. i am not sure what to expect. we are answering your questions and no one has seen them. thousands of you have written in, we will respond when we come back. i am out of stuff to say. how mu protein does your dog food have? 18 percent? 20? new purina one true instinct has 30. active dogs crave nutrient-dense food. so we made purina one true instinct. learmore at purinaone.com
